    I have to replace the waterpump; but can't follow the "simplified" instructions in Chilton's because they don't take into account the half of engine I have to remove to reach the waterpump to remove it. Is there really a "simplified" way of getting to it and replacing it?? The air-conditioner compressor is in the way, and the waterpump can't be reached without removing the AC. I'm fairly knowledgable with maintaining vehicles; but this one has me stumped.

Some models have a bolt that needs to be accessed through a hole in the frame, I'm working on one now, and am tired of all the ******* around and misinformation, because all models seem different in some way or other..

That bolt holds the crank pulley on to the crankshaft. you can try to hold the engine at the flywheel access hole (timing check hole) at rear of engine

I am replacing the water pump on my 1996 Isuzu Rodeo. One of the water pump bolts is under the lower timing belt cover. However, the lower timing belt cover appears to connect around the crank shaft...

Hello Ralph,

What you actually going to have to do is take both timings covers off eventually. The waterpump is driven by the timing belt, and will have to be removed along with various other components.

The pulley bolted to the crankshaft will have to be removed, as well as the entire fan assembly. I forget what the socket is I used on it, but I believe it was 1-1/8".

If you send me an email to, I'd be more than happy to send you a .pdf file that details what you are getting into. Too long to list on here.

Best regards,

I need a diagram for replacing a serpentine belt also are all the pulleys supposed to move that hold the belt on

There were 4 different engine sizes for that year truck.
It looks like the belt route is the same for all.
I hope this helps. God Bless

Where is the water pump located? I had something blow and its leaking raidaitor fluid around pully system? What do I need to take apart to find the water pump?

Your fan & pulley are bolted to the waterpump. You need to remove plastic fan schrod, then fan, pulley, belt then you will see waterpump bolted to front of engine. Stop by any good parts store, have them look up waterpump and show you what it looks like. Then you'll know what to look for.

Procedure on changing waterpump

  1. first drain the cooling system.
  2. loosen bolts on the waterpump pulley and remove the inner fender cover on the pass/side.
  3. remove the surpentine fan belt, note; make a diagram of the belt routing so belt will go back on the right way.
  4. remove the bolts you loosened on the pump pulley, use a pry bar to pry engine back to have enough room to remove the waterpump pulley.
  5. remove the bolts holding waterpump, you will want a pan under the van to catch coolant when waterpump is removed,
  6. remove the pump and clean old gasket off the block and install new pump,
  7. reverse to install new pump and fill system with coolant allow engine to run until thremostat opens,hope this is helpful. heres a few diagrams of the waterpump and the cover and the belt routing, good luck and hope this is helpful.

I cant get my fan belt on my 1996 300tdi it seems too small.

Find the adjuster idler pulley. It is a pulley that does not drive anything ie aircon, powersteering,waterpump etc. It will have a single 15mm? bolt on it. Fit a suitable spanner on the bolt and turn clockwise. You will find that with minimal force the whole pulley will move and the (old) belt becomes slack. New belt is no longer too small and can be fitted.

How do you change a waterpump on a 1987 ford aerostar with a clutch fan

Pretty easy for average mech. first drain coolant by loosening the lower radiator hose.
Make sure to have a drain pan. remove the power steering belt by removing the bolts to the idler pulley. and let belt off the pulley.remove the alternator upper bracket. and remove belt.
Take fan shroud off with two 8mm bolts on top oe it.
You cant remove untill you remove the clutch fan assembly.
It is left handed thread.
It has to be removed together.
Remove the four bolts to the pulley on front of water pump. and then remove all 14mm bolts around the pump.
Then remove 8mm bolts and it will be able to come off. assemble in reverse order!

How easy is it to change water pump gasket on 91

There are two pulleys running in this engine, and the waterpump runs on the second pully behind a case. so you have to take almost everything off to get at it. Then, the waterpump is actually the belt tensioner for that pulley system. it is excentric (sp?) so when you turn it in place, it tightens the belt. then you secure it back with three bolts. The belt system in question connects the drive shaft with the cam shaft, So you do have to be Very Careful with the belt/ pulley alignment. i marked the pulleys very very carefully so i could get everything lined up again.

Waterpump pulley removal

Pulley unbolts from the front of the pump. Remove belt after you loosen the pump bolts. you can lean on the belt to keep the pulley from turning as you break the bolts loose.
